PENDLETON — Longtime Pendleton resident and business owner Virginia Livingston Merriman died Saturday, Nov. 26, in her room at McKay Creek Estates. She was 97.
Merriman was born Feb. 10, 1925, in St. Louis, Missouri, and grew up in southern Idaho during the Great Depression, her son Edward F. Merriman said. Like most people in the area, her family was poor, but a large garden helped keep them fed. Neighbors shared what they had and put everything into a large stew pot heated outdoors by a fire pit.
